New category code for civil legal aid applications to cover exclusion orders under sections 76 to 80 of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 Act.


Thursday, Dec 18, 2014

There is new category code for civil legal aid applications to cover exclusion orders under sections 76 to 80 of the Children (Scotland) Act 1995 Act.

Previously this work was covered under children’s legal aid but since the implementation of the Children’s Hearings (Scotland) Act 2011 this is no longer the case.

The cover that is now available is under civil legal aid with the new category code CEXC.

The cost limits applicable for any grant of civil legal aid are:

  • COURT OF SESSION (INNER HOUSE)      £5000
  • COURT OF SESSION (OUTER HOUSE)    £5000
  • SHERIFF COURT (1ST INSTANCE)           £2000
  • SHERIFF COURT (SHERIFF PRINCIPAL)  £2000
